Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have been helping to grow out the trend of the two Dutch plaits, since they’ve worn it to pretty much any type of event, from Coachella to private parties.
They are not the only ones that embrace this particular way of putting your hair out of your face, but a lot of tutorial on Youtube have helped as well. The concept of the Dutch braid is to do the exact opposite motion of a French braid, putting the outer sections underneath the middle.
There are many variations of this style, and every single one of them works in all shapes and hair lengths.
If you have a lot of hair or it’s very thick, you can opt to do a full hair braid, since that will help you deal with the whole 1-hour-styling situation. You can go further than the simple three stranded look, and do a two-strand, three-strand, and even the five-strand braid that just looks really pretty on anyone.
You can always combine different braids with this one. Perhaps braiding your hair until you ran out of it in order to grab, and then starting to fishtail it to the very ends. Also finishing in the shape of a bun – which you can braid as well before shaping it- will help you look cute during the hot summer days!
Here’s a bit more of a simpler idea: braid one section of hair from the top, then stop and put everything in a ponytail for a sportier look. The important here to remember is to adjust it to your liking and to do whatever you want with it.
Half-up half-down hairstyles are really on trend right now, so it will be logical to suggest a classier and easier look. That way you’ll look amazing in less than 5 minutes! You can always play with this one and change things up a bit.
Your hair, your rules. Make sure to grab sections of hair from both sides, because if you don’t you’ll end up with a lace braid instead of a really beautiful and time-consuming appearance that the Dutch is known for.
Braids are meant to be another way to style your hair and save some time. If you don’t make it at the first try, don’t worry! This particular type of braid is more difficult since your reversing the movement of a French braid, which is a lot easier.
You’ll see that at the end, it will all be worth it when people compliment you about your gorgeous braiding and how time consuming your hairstyle looks.
